I forget if its the Verge or some other popular podcast but they are always suggesting Apple just put together a fully open and accredited online university.

The problem is that there are a lot of people getting paid a lot of money all over the world to work in post-secondary education whom control the keys to accreditation and whom have proven very resilient at resisting any optimization efforts.

Apple isn't open. Their stuff has tended to not work on Linux.

I don't see why one would need Apple to do it. A consortium would be much better and more likely.

Apple is big enough to piss away one billion dollar and create a crazy good online University.

Also need done good pr I guess :)
